    Windows calibration resets

    I got a problem with my with windows display color calibration. If i play a game, the calibration resets, so i have to make a new one again. Any suggestions?

    Solved by doing a calibration with nvidias control panel instead.

    A known issue since updating to Creators Update. It hasn't been fixed yet.

    I would never use Windows to calibrate my monitors
    (waaaaay to in exact)

    For my HP 27VX 1920 x 1080 monitor I use NVIDIA's Control Panel:

    For my BenQ 4K monitor I use the included software: "Display Pilot".

    Try using your GPU to calibrate first.

    This seems to have solved it.

    But the problem is that i can't really seem to get a good result with the nvidia control panel settings.

    I managed to get a good result with a calibration using the nvidia control panel after tweaking for weeks.
